Baby Pietman

Newborn
The du Preez’s recently welcomed 7-day old Pietman to their home!
 
To say Pietman’s dad, Pieter (or “Supa Piet” as he’s known) is a legend is somewhat of an understatement. Pieter is a C6 quadriplegic after a tragic accident in 2003 which left him with no movement from his shoulders down. He has no movement in his fingers and hands and little/no movement in his triceps…but that hasn’t slowed him down.
 
In the last couple of years alone he has achieved double gold medals at the Paracycling World Championships, he is a course record holder in the Berlin Marathon, he is the first C6 quad to complete a full 70.3 Ironman and has since completed 4 and he is the world record holder in this event. And most recently he swam the 8km Robben Island swim…a world first for a quadriplegic. He is an actuarial analyst at Deloitte – where I first had the pleasure of meeting him.
 
Illse has been his number one supporter and fan – they just celebrated their 9th wedding anniversary!
 
Now they’re embarking on a new adventure which Pieter affectionately calls his latest achievement as… IRONDAD ;-)
 
Pieter is helping raise funds for the Wings For Life Foundation (not-for-profit spinal cord research foundation). You can find out more here: http://www.wingsforlifeworldrun.com/…/help-us-raise-funds-…/

Baby Ross

Newborn

Luke has a baby brother and he couldn’t stop smiling about it!

We had delayed little Ross’s shoot by about a week so that Luke could recover from a cold. So I was really glad that at just under 3 weeks, Ross was so calm and peaceful for his newborn session at the Bryce-Borthwick home.

Thank you and congratulations to Warren & Janlee on your beautiful second son!

Baby Nikhil

Newborn

Yashoda & Dharmesh welcomed little Nikhil to the family last month. I met them at their beautiful new home when he was just 10 days old for his newborn session.

Big sister Liya and brother Rahul are pretty excited to say the least :-)

Thank you so much for inviting me to photograph your handsome baby boy!

Welcome Baby Giorgio

Newborn

This was my first Fresh 48 session and I couldn’t have loved it more!

It was really special to be able to meet Baby Giorgio Skiathos  – less than 2 days old and already as cute as can be!

I’ll still be seeing the whole family for Giorgio’s newborn shoot at home next week but capturing him and his family during these precious first moments together was a real privilege.

Congratulations Rene & Spiro Skiathos

The Lawson Family

Family
These big family shoot during the holidays were just great! The Lawson family gathered at the family home for some portraits in their beautiful garden.
 
Extreme happiness from the springer spaniel Ollie who had decided to go exploring down the road. He was luckily found and returned home with much excitement :-)

Baby Mia

Newborn
I met the latest addition to the Eblen family in December…cute 3 week old baby Mia! Little Mia arrived earlier than expected so her original due date ended up being her newborn shoot :-)
 
Siblings Jessica & Ashton were stars and so great with their new baby sister!
